What is the Downtime Reasons Feature?

Reason code analysis is pivotal for a detailed understanding of your Line's operations. The Downtime Reasons section of the Reporting and Analytics feature collects all the reason codes leading to Availability loss, thereby impacting the OEE. By paying attention to these codes, manufacturers can focus on reducing the number of unplanned stops and equipment stops based on the cause.

Listed in this section is a chronological record of each reason code along with details like the start and end date-time of the downtime, occurrence, count, cost implications, comments, and any equipment involved. If you want to exclude or include any of these columns, click on the first icon at the top-right of the Reason Code table.

There are filters available for a user to set if they want to drill down on a particular Reason Code or a level of reason code.
You can choose to view these in a list format or a grid format by clicking on the third and fourth icons above the reason code table. Users can also manage the reason codes by updating or removing these Downtime Reason Codes by clicking on the pencil or trash bin icons to the right of every record, increasing overall growth and performance rapidly.
